The Great Bible 1539



2:1But I determined this in my selfe, that I wold not come agayne to you in heuynes.
2:2For yf I make you sorye, who is it that shuld make me glad, but the same which is made sory by me?
2:3And I wrote thys same vnto you, lest yf I came vnto you, I shuld take heuynes of them, of whom I ought to reioyce. Thys confidence haue I towarde you all, that my ioye is the ioye of you all.
2:4For out of great affliccyon and anguysshe of hert. I wrote vnto you with many teares: not that ye shulde be made sory, but that ye myght perceaue the loue, whych I haue, most specially vnto you.
2:5If eny man hath caused sorow, the same hath not made me sory, but partely: lest I shulde greue you all.
2:6It is sufficient vnto the same man, that he was rebuked of many.
2:7So that now contrary wyse, ye ought rather to forgeue him, and comforte him: lest that same persone shuld be swalowed vp wt ouer moch heuynes.
2:8Wherfore, I exhorte you, that loue maye haue strength ouer him.
2:9For this cause verely dyd I wryte, that I myght knowe the profe of you, whether ye shulde be obedient in all thynges.
2:10To whom ye forgeue eny thynge, I forgeue also. For yf I forgaue eny thynge, to whom I forgaue it, for youre sakes forgaue I it, in the syght of Christ,
2:11lest Satan shuld preuent vs. For his thoughtes are not vnknowen vnto vs.
2:12When I was come to Troada for Christes Gospelles sake (and a dore was opened vnto me of the Lord)
2:13I had no rest in my sprete, because I founde not Titus my brother: but toke my leaue of them, and went awaye into Macedonia.
2:14Thankes be vnto God, which alwayes geueth vs the victorie in Christ, and openeth the sauer of his knowledge by vs in euery place.
2:15For we are vnto God the swete sauoure of Christ, amonge them that are saued, and amonge them which perysshe.
2:16To the one parte are we the sauour of deeth vnto deeth. And vnto the other part are we the sauour of lyfe vnto lyfe. And who is mete vnto these thinges?
2:17For we are not as the most part are, which choppe and chaunge with the worde of God: but euen out of purenes, and by the power of God, in the syght of God, so speake we in Christ.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
